Why TMC leaders are only arrested in Saradha scam? CPI-M asks

Press Trust of India  |  Kolkata 

The CPI-M today said it is time the people of the state asked the ruling Trinamool Congress to answer why only its leaders are being arrested and questioned in the multi-crore Saradha chit fund scandal.

Left Front chairman Biman Bose was fielding questions on TMC leader Sankudeb Panda being summoned by CBI in the Saradha Scam.

"Time has come for the people of Bengal to question and decide why only TMC leaders, those who are close to TMC are being arrested and questioned in the Saradha scam," Bose said on the occasion of a book release.

CPI-M leader and Leader of Opposition in West Bengal Assembly Surya Kanta Mishra said, "This is a government of limitless corruption and they have not answered to any of the pertinent questions that we have raised. We have not got satisfactory answers from the chief minister also."

On the prospect of a Left Front-Congress tie-up, Mishra said he can't answer the question and it is for the Left Front to decide."

Mishra accused the TMC government of taking the state backwards in every segment of the development index in the last four and a half years.
